Is there anyway you could corral her into a stall? Or is it too easy for her to take off?

No, it would be WAY to easy for her to bolt out onto the road, and right now there are stupid motercyclists, I would like to go hit some sense into their probably drunk heads right now

Your yard isnt fenced?

Do you have any pannels? It would be a lot but you could rig up a chute from her field to her stall to get her in away from the coyotes?

At least you know she's a good mommy.

She foaled four days ago? Hasn't the vet been out? The baby should have been checked in the first 24 hours.

Do you have someone who could lasso her? You'd be able to do it somewhat from a distance and then you have her.. that's the only thing I can think of.

Next time you let her out, I suggest you put her into something smaller, or keep a short (1-2 ft) lead on her so you can grab her.

Some mares become very very protective of their foals.

If you can get your hands on some panels, try and corral her. Does she have somewhere to get out of the rain?

The vet was out minutes after the birth. We don't have panels but we do have left over hot wire tape that we could put up if worse comse to worse. Our yard is fenced, we just don't have a gate that closes it off from the road yet.

Could you put a car or truck where you don't have a gate?

no, my mom hates run ins. She didn't want them built on the property last spring, but now has changed her mind and we are working on geting some. They have one bare tree
